Traffic summonses amounting to RM1.3mil collected during discount period, say Johor cops


ISKANDAR PUTERI: A total of RM1.3mil worth of traffic summonses were collected by the Johor police during the three-day 50% discount period that started on Friday (Sept 30).

Johor police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said that at the same time, only 26 summonses were paid out of a total of 109,758 summonses issued to Singaporean drivers.

"Having collected RM1.3mil worth of summons is not something that we can be proud of. Instead, it is a clear signal for us to continue to advocate and spread awareness to the public on the importance of following road regulations.

"We will continue to conduct similar approaches and we hope that this will not only benefit our locals, but also road users from Singapore," he said.

He said this when met by reporters after the closing ceremony of the Johor police Ramah Mesra programme convoy at Puteri Harbour here on Sunday (Oct 2).

Some of the traffic offences include speeding, not wearing seatbelts, blocking traffic, and cutting queues.

Payments for the 50% discounts can be made at traffic police stations in all district police headquarters in the state from 8.30am to 5pm.

The state police had also issued a total of 2.2 million outstanding summonses from 2018 until now, of which only 23% have been paid, added Comm Kamarul Zaman.
